No man survives when freedom fails;
the best men rot in filthy jails.
And those who cry "Appease, appease!"
are hanged by those they tried to please.
The best lack all conviction, while
The worst are full of passionate intensity.
RIGHT-WING Dutch legislator Geert Wilders, who is being prosecuted at home in Eurabia for anti-Islam remarks, said he was barred from entering Britain on Thursday after he landed in defiance of a government ban. Wilders wanted to show his film "Fitna," which argues that the Koran incites violence, in the British parliament. But he was told by British authorities on Tuesday that he was being excluded. Despite that, he took a flight to London.
"I am in a detention centre at Heathrow. I will not be allowed to enter the country. They will send me back within a few hours," Wilders told Reuters from the airport. "It is a very sad day, not only for me, but for freedom of speech," he said. The Home Office said he would not be allowed entry into the country, but gave no other details....
Wilders' exclusion caused a diplomatic spat between the Netherlands and Britain. And this is a story with hardly a peep from the mainstream media. It has come to this: If you are an Islamic radical, trained to carry out terrorist atrocities in al-Qaeda’s jihad against the United Kingdom, the British will welcome you with open arms. Not content with that, Great Britain will lobby insistently for your release from custody so that you may freely roam British streetsand the halls of Westminster.
If, by contrast, you are a duly elected representative in the democratic government of a country to which England is bound in the European Union, and you speak about the undeniablethough mulishly deniednexus between Islamic doctrine and jihadist terror, Great Britain will slam her door in your face.
